 Hello everyone,

 if the WordPress-editor is used on the front-end by calling the
 ''wp_editor()'' function (e.g. for the comments-area or somewhere else
 inside a plugin), a H1 headline-tag is added to the end of the HTML-

 This tag is part of the editors modal-dialog for inserting/editing a link
 as shown in the following image:


 The modal-dialog is hidden by default and only visible when editing a
 link. The H1 headline-tag gets generated inside the ''wp_link_dialog()''
 function of the ''_WP_Editors'' class.

 I use the WordPress-editor inside my Asgaros Forum-plugin and got a couple
 of reports from users about this issue in the past (examples:

 [https://wordpress.org/support/topic/seo-hostilely-2/#post-11105219 2]).
 The main concern is that multiple H1 headline-tags may have a negative
 impact in regards to SEO.

 In my oppinion there is no good reason for using a H1 headline-tag for the
 title of this modal-dialog because it is not related to the content of the
 page. As an alternative a DIV-tag could be used instead to solve this
